Aero themes not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Win 7 professional 64 bit HP 6300 PC and Aero themes stopped working. What I was looking for was thumbnail views of open programs in taskbar. All I got were lists. I down loaded an updated Intel graphics driver for my PC from HP, installed it, rebooted, and Aero themes Color transparency's was working. However when I hover over the taskbar I can get a thumbnail if only 1 instance of that program is running(example IE). If I have more than 1 window in the stack I get lists again.

  • I ran the aero troubleshooting fix it link and received message "We did not detect any problems and therefore no fixes were applied". I have tried everything. I wonder if it is a registry fix that is needed.

    I have an old HP dx2400 with Win 7 pro 32 bit that works fine. I have so many windows open and thumbnail pictures are so much easier to use than text.

  • The fixes I am getting are for AERO that is not working. My problem is that aero is working in control panel. I can get a transparency. When I have programs open they are pinned to taskbar and if there is only 1 instance I get a thumbnail. If I have 2 open, such as IE, I get a list.
